Preseason Day 10

It was more of the same today as staff worked on various projects.

 Matching drawings with sherds

Matching drawings with sherds

Several members of the staff worked on checking pottery drawings against the actual sherds/vessels that were drawn. If the drawing was deemed accurate, it got checked off and the drawn item was put in the "to be filed away," pile. If there were any concerns with a drawing, the staff put it aside to confer later with co-director Daniel Master on the best way to fix the problem.

 "Typing" pottery

Kate worked on identifying pottery types as she continued to refine the Hellenistic period ceramic typology.

Staff members are arriving daily-- several today and four more tomorrow. We are only days away from the start of the 2015 field season!
